I believe Dhamma is right: it's Milton Friedman and his ilk who think complete de-regulation and government non-interference in the market is the way to go: Big Business always knows best. The Forum may be the only working model of positive deregulated space in existence... :)

Keith? Only the best keyboardist they ever had (and this is coming from a Stone PigPen Freak)...if only he'd branched out more from his regular piano, because when he plays organ or synthesizer, he's a wizard on them as well...

Yeah, as long as we get our free shows from Big Brother... and free hosting from wherever Archive gets its money (a very different Big Brother maybe).

Well, I'll be an economics prof's monkey's uncle!

You guys are way ahead of me...I never knew exactly what Keynes or Friedman had in mind, BUT I did vaguely recall that Keynes was for a guiding hand, and Milton less so, so I will go with your recommendation...er...summation.

As to the present state of forum affairs, I was only presenting for discussion the notion of whether or not specialization or generaliztion in trade/goods/etc was best among entities (ie, us as individuals), recalling early encounters with notions of Keynesian Economics theory and idealized aportionment of effort...

Good on you all...

Not smarter. Just better informed about this little bit of trivia. I guarantee there are hundreds of things you know more about than anyone else. We are all ignorant of exponentially more information than we actually know; which is why no one of us is as smart as all of us (and why there's no end to the learning and sharing).

Yep; I know it sounds terribly smug, and perhaps a little scary, but I actually think there are some relatively well-informed folks around here! Notice I took your advice, and didn't say "smarter"...

I learn stuff here every day!

Take care, D! Always a pleasure.
